Pinyin search modifier

Post by void »

Everything 1.5.0.1320a adds support for an experimental pinyin: search modifier.

Only the first pinyin character of each Chinese character is required.

Please let me know if this modifier is useful.

I will look into making this modifier enabled by default.


For example:
pinyin:yq matches: 一切
(yi1 qie1 qie4)

Finally🎉!

Wait for this fantastic feature so looooooooooooong!

future enchancement could be heteronym support.

for example, 长:
"长 高" reads "zhang3" "gao1", here "长" means "grow up"
"长 短" reads "chang2" "duan3", here "长" means "long"

so, "zg" should match the first (but now it uses "cg"), while "cd" should match the second.

Search modifiers like pinyin: are put in front of the functions they work on.

Does pinyin:comment:"your text" give the expected results?
